Golden Geometric Necklace

Wednesday


I'm notably pleased with the outcome of this piece. Its soothing color pallet and modern shape are sweet to the eye. Here's all the details..
Golden Geometric Necklace
Supplies: paint chips (1-3 different colors schemes), necklace chain, and matching jewelry hooks.
Pantry Supplies: scissors, jewelry pliers, and needle or sewing pin.
First, cut out triangles in different colors. You can make it all the same color in different shades, or mix different color schemes together. I chose three separate colors.
 Next, you'll make the holes for the chain by poking each corner of the triangle with your needle/sewing pin. The only triangles you won't make holes in all the corners are the bottom two. They will only require holes in the top two corners. I highly suggest laying out all your triangles to see what the pattern looks like before you begin piecing it together.
 To begin connecting your chain, space out the triangles and start adding hooks at the appropriate spots. You will want the corners touching but not overlapping so that the next row lines up perfectly. Your first row will look like the photo above.
Then, begin adding the next two rows.
The middle row will require double hooking in some areas to connect the top and middle row.
dress: H&M. hair technique: fishtail braid
There you have it. Your very own geometric necklace. Hope your day is nothing but loveliness.
